"We are excited to add a collection of current hits to our growing portfolio," said Josh Gruss, CEO/Founder of Round Hill Music. "We believe the songs in the Arthouse catalog are the cultural anthems of this decade and will have enduring appeal. These titles expand our repertoire of popular music and are a strong complement to our existing roster of iconic titles from artists such as the Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Frank Sinatra."
